WOW! Holy before and after!

Hi Friends!

Happy Tuesday (hint of sarcasm?)!

As I mentioned in my last post - this has been a crazy few weeks for me. I haven't been able to work on any projects lately... not that I haven't wanted to. Right now, I have two unfinished nightstands sitting in my "one-day office." I am hoping to finish them this weekend! Cross your fingers for me.

BUT! I do have an awesome before and after for you today! My friend and classmate from college, Shaheen decided to do a little furniture rehabbing of his own after seeing some before/after pics I had done. I have to admit, I was a bit flattered (well, still am).

Shaheen emailed his before and after to me this afternoon - and I am so excited to share them with you!

Shaheen bought the dresser at a local yard sale from a carpenter for only $3.00!! What a steal!?! The 70 year old dresser required some work, but once you see the finished product - you will agree that it was well worth the hassle!

The piece needed some work, so Shaheen scrapped off the flaking paint, sanded it down, selected an earth chocolate brown paint, added some new brush nickel hardware, and legs.

WOW! WOW! WOW! The entire thing only cost Shaheen and his wife, Renee $25.00!!

Good job, Shaheen! Can't wait to see your next project!

If you have a project you want to share, please email me at

Talk soon friends! Hopefully I will be able to complete a project of my own soon! :)
